When we checked in they mentioned renovations were going on. When we entered the room it had a very new smell. It was obvious the carpet had been replaced quite recently. The couch and chair also appeared to be new.
We must have been the first guests in the room after the carpet was replaced, because the room was not ready for guests. There were no TV remote in the room. The TV in the living room would not turn on and the desk was extremely rickety. All the above were reported on separate occasions, as they were discovered and quickly addressed.
Additionally the phone had the wrong room number on it. The drawers on the dresser in the bedroom would not stay closed, and kept sliding open about 6 inches. One of the plastic rings that hold the shower curtain was missing. The rolling desk chair was also very wobbly.
The rooms were spacious, and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was quite small, but there is a second sink and the bedroom.
The room was in good shape at a quick glance, but did show some wear, which is not uncommon in any hotel.
There was a sink in the living room, with microwave and mini refrigerator.
The cooked to order breakfast was very good.
The pool area was very nice and included a hot tub. There was a significant amount of water on the floor between the pool and hot tub, and it appeared the drain was not working. This was reported to the front desk, I did not have time to return to the pool, so do not know if it was corrected.
All staff encountered were friendly and professional and knowledgeable.
We saw carpet being replaced on additional floors being renovated with carpet and paint. Not sure how much else is being done to the rooms. More attention needs to be paid to details when re-opening the rooms.
